    i thought i would hold a contest in honor of my newest coin. i have wanted a coin minted in b.c. times for quite a while, and i finally got one!! all you have to do is guess what kind of coin it is. example- "roman" would not be specific enough. "roman denarius" would be. got it? this contest is open to anyone who has been a member for more than a month. the winner will receive 2 buffalo nickels:

    post your answers here, 1 guess per member per 24 hour period. first person to guess wins. good luck, and thanks for playing!

    Heck, I'll give it a shot and I don't know much about ancients. Lets say Augustus Silver Cistophorus?

    Well, to move things along, you could post the answer and see who the first person who could still guess was, and have them copy it, but of course that would kill the suspense, as this may kill the thread.

    (Wow, I shouldn't even be attempting this...I know absolutely nothing about ancient coins.) Good luck with the contest, thank you for it, and congratulations on whatever your coin is!
